    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    We’ll get a chance to see a bit more of Barnsley this week as they’re on Sky for their next 2 games away at Birmingham and home to Bournemouth on Friday.

    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    I’m still wondering how we managed to get Kaminski! He’s in the Belgium squad and left a club who were in the Champions League qualifying rounds. Is it because of our new European scouting system or is it the manager or is it our historic standing in the game? Needless to say I’m thrilled to bits he’s a Rover and he will have an important role in our development this season.

    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    A bit nervy at times but Barnsley played well and we had to be at our dogged best to keep them out. Kaminski MOM but special praise to Lenighan and Wharton who were on top form today.

    My role as a manager within a school department was to create the conditions where other members of the department felt confident in coming up with ideas which drove us all forward. What pleased me even more was when key pupils in a class setting felt confident enough to inspire their peers and positively influence their learning. I smiled when I read that article and got exactly what Mowbray was saying. From afar he seems to have got the conditions spot on for moving positively forward.

    Nobbers v Rovers, Tues 24 Nov 7.45pm

    You are pleased with the result tonight, are you? Why bring up our manager’s tenure when most PNE supporters are clamouring for Neil’s sacking.

    Nobbers v Rovers, Tues 24 Nov 7.45pm

    Wharton was great tonight. Perhaps we can put to bed the brilliance of Patrick Bauer! Astonishing statistics for the possession in the game. I’m really chuffed for Gallagher as his running and physicality caused the sending off. It’s that effort as in the Coventry game that cause defenders to get sent off and thus make the game a little easier. Holtby is an absolute gem and he and Rothwell can be really dynamic in this league.

    Luton Town v Rovers Sat 21st Nov. 3pm

    I’ve never seen Mark Venus so animated as he was at the end. I initially thought he came on to remonstrate with the ref but I think it was to prevent one of Johnson, Rothwell or Brereton getting a red card.

    Luton Town v Rovers Sat 21st Nov. 3pm

    Gavin Ward has got previous in this league. He regularly gets criticism from managers! I have to say I can’t believe how he didn’t give us a free kick for the assault on Armstrong. I wasn’t convinced it was a pen with Brereton. However, feeling very frustrated tonight.

    Luton Town v Rovers Sat 21st Nov. 3pm

    My FotMob app is saying Elliott Bennett is playing up front with Arma and Brereton! Thank goodness I came on here to check!

    Blackburn Ladies

    Finished 0-0. Very entertaining game and our left back Ali Johnson looks a good player. They missed a lot of good chances but our goalie made a couple of stunning saves. We would actually have won the game but for a bizarre piece of refereeing disallowing a goal to give us a free kick!

    Blackburn Ladies

    HT 0-0 but an interesting watch. You can tell that Liverpool are the full time outfit and should be leading but Rovers are sticking in there.

    Blackburn Ladies

    Thank you for your reply. It did strike me as odd the different titles. I’m now wondering what some of the European teams names are! I’ll certainly have a look at Ali Johnson as she must be looking forward to playing against Liverpool. I’ll definitely be watching this afternoon.

    Sorry Sparks I’m not understanding!

    Blackburn Ladies

    Edit! Just spotted Coventry Ladies, London Bees and London Lionesses! But still the majority are Women. Is there a good reason? Perhaps Natalie could tell us!

    Blackburn Ladies

    The Rovers Ladies v Liverpool Women is live this Sunday at 2pm on the FA channel or LTV. Also I’m curious as to why all the other teams in this league are “Women” yet Rovers are “Ladies?”

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I think you have clearly misunderstood my reply to Mercer. His default position is that Rovers will not gain promotion under Mowbray. An opinion I totally understand and he’s entitled to it. His comment today suggested a change of position in that he kept the door open to promotion as a possibility this season. That is why I said he can’t have it both ways. What I don’t understand is why am I explaining myself to you!

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    You have stated on more than one occasion that promotion under Mowbray is not going to happen and yet here you are suggesting that only promotion is to be classed as success! You can’t have it both ways. You will be delighted like the rest of us if we get back to the Prem but if we don’t then you will be heralded as a sage. What a great position to be in.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    I don’t know, Tyrone, if you get the Sunday edition of your paper but Andy Cole’s book is being serialised over this weekend and he mentions a certain Steve Waggott whom he engaged on the advice of his friend Paul Elliott to be his agent in the deal that took him to Newcastle from Bristol in 1993. I am assuming it is our very own CEO. I can’t think there are many Steve Waggott’s in football! I’m afraid he doesn’t come out of it very well. Cole is still angry about the fact that it cost him £30,000 for very little work to get the deal done.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I think it’s only for 2 months. According to Jeff Sterling yesterday their main defenders are missing so Rovers agreed to help them out and give Magloire some game time in a competitive league.

    Rovers v QPR Sat 7th November

    A very welcome win and some encouraging performances today. Rothwell was my MOM for his aggressive runs but Johnson was very good too. He is benefiting from the intensive fitness programme at Brockhall. I thought Lenihan was back to his best form and Wharton looked very promising. Mowbray has compared him to O’Connell which is high praise. I don’t think anyone had a poor game against a decent QPR side.

    Rovers v Middlesbrough Tuesday 3rd November

    My goodness that was 90 minutes of stress and anxiety. I’ve never been as happy to hear the full time whistle. A point gained but the performance was poor virtually throughout. Boro were the better side tonight but our defending was much improved from recent games. Williams MOM for me. His defending and willingness to drive forward and shoot were impressive; such a shame he got injured. Brereton and Gallagher toothless up front and still to be wowed over Harvey Elliott. There is talent there but still like Dolan looks like a schoolboy playing a man’s game. I agree with posters who are pointing out our injury list. It’s so frustrating watching us these last 3 games as we have the players to make us a decent outfit in this league.

    Academy & U21s

    Terrific game so far. Our left back Cirino looks good and what a talent Brennan is. A couple of storming runs into the box brought 2 good chances. Perhaps we might have had a pen. Our number 7 is a Dolan lookalike!

    Swansea City away

    I know this is a tenuous link to the match day thread but I’m curious as to the practicalities of actually fulfilling tomorrow’s fixture. With Wales in total lockdown does the Rovers squad have to fly down on the Saturday morning or are they allowed to stay in a hotel overnight? If indeed there are any hotels open? I suppose if the former then that might impact on performance. I’m not trying to get an excuse in early for a poor performance; just curious. As for the score 1-1 for me.
